Now, with more weird Seattle goodness!

Seattle is about as far West you can go without falling off the edge.  People who moved here just kept going and going until they couldn't go any further.  Rain, long winter nights, the often-gray skies -- these things have caused many around here to delve deeper into themselves and follow their hearts, eccentricities and all.  People here aren't any weirder than anywhere else, we're just not afraid to show it.


Breakfast in a Record Shop


Easy Street Records is the best little record store, cafe and cocktail lounge in West Seattle and it's almost single-handedly doing its best to keep Seattle weird!

East Street is an independent record store that opened in 1988 and they're a super-favorite here at Keep Seattle Weird.  They opened a small cafe inside and then later, an upstairs "speakeasy" cocktail lounge.  They are so beloved, when West 5 Bar and Restaurant closed up the street, they gave their beloved Mai-Tai recipe to the folks at Easy Street. They have record release parties, in-store performances and it serves as a mini-townhall of sorts for local residents.


Poop Walk - Waterworks Gardens wastewater treatment art installation

If you want to get out of the city and have a fun and educational walk, go visit Lorna Jordan's Waterworks Garden a few minutes outside Seattle, near beautiful downtown Renton. Lorna's design for Waterworks Gardens combined classical garden design, wastewater treatment infrastructure and habitat restoration. The garden is a great place to stroll and get out doors, while enjoying an art installation and understanding how nature cleans dirty water to provide us with clean drinking water. The artist was inspired by her study of Italian gardens and the sense of theater that she observed there. The Grotto was hand made from stone and concrete and, with its flowing water, pools, native plantings, mosaic, and stone seating, remains a favorite gathering place for visitors to the site.
